VIDEO: Headteacher ‘Happy’ staff’s spoof video has gone viral

Gazette: Headteacher ‘Happy’ staff’s spoof video has gone viral Headteacher ‘Happy’ staff’s spoof video has gone viral

A HEADTEACHER has said he is more than happy to see an extraordinary spoof music video made by school staff go viral on the internet.

Teachers and staff at Alec Hunter Academy let their hair down for the video set to Pharrell Williams' 2013 hit Happy in which they are shown dancing and larking around on the school site.

Headteacher Trevor Lawn, pictured, can be seen strutting his stuff down the school corridors.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Mr Lawn said the video, which has had more than 7,200 views on YouTube, was made for the end of year leaver’s assembly and was not intended to be shared.

He said: “Immediately after it was shown in the assembly we received so many requests for copies of it we decided it would be easier just to put it on YouTube.

"In a strange way it seems to have given the school a boost and put a smile on everyone’s face.

“We never expected it would get so many hits on YouTube, but this is great.”

If I were an employer interviewing young candidates for a responsible position in my company - irrespective of their academic qualifications - if I considered for one moment that they had been inculcated with an understanding that such idiotic behaviour was acceptable in the workplace then I'm afraid I would be closing their files forthwith.

There is a time and place for such 'high cockalorums'.

I can't offer an opinion on the time; but I certainly believe that they got it seriously wrong vis-á-vis 'the place'.

Aw, stop it the lot of you! Relax and think beyond the old-fashioned ideas and mores inculcated from a stuffy and altogether much more straight-laced time! I might agree that some of the antics border upon a little dangerous but come on! Lighten up, for heavens' sakes. We do the same sort of thing in my office -- particularly on a Friday with the nerf guns and various other projectiles at hand (soft balls etc. Not ink wells and pens!). It makes for a great team of friends who work better, more effectively and harder due in part to that bond developed by team play. If I interviewed a potential employer and found them to be so stiff I would -- politely, of course -- bid adieu and get the freak outta there as soon as I could and warn any other potential candidates to find alternative employment!

Life's too short for such typical English old-fashioned post-war (emotional) privation. Screaming and kicking, you really ought to drag yourselves, nonetheless, into the twenty-first century!

I think it is brilliant. My children went to the school some years ago and we would all have found it really 'cool' that the teachers did that. The teachers I remember fondly from my own days at school were the ones who tried to make it fun, you actually respected them way more than the horrible strict ones. It is ridiculous to say the kids will want to start dancing on the tables. Give them some credit!

Ah Helenbach, you touch upon some interesting issues.

My (Welsh) Grandmother used to call me Boybach (little boy as I understood it) so perhaps you are onto something. Are you also of Celtic provenance I wonder? Perhaps we're long lost cousins? I bet that would please you. Ha ha!

As for Fidget recommending that I let my hair down I have but one question. What hair?

By the way I used the term 'High Cockalorums' in the context of the old fashioned rowdy game played by revelling boisterous groups in places such as military messes when they (would you believe it?) set about 'letting their hair down' - and busting the place (and each other) up in the process!

P.S. Don't worry Helen, I have asked my secretary to flag up your CV when it arrives. You'll be alright Kid. I've got just the job for you. You'll be making my tea and sharpening my pencils in no time at all. (Just remember I take four spoons of sugar in the mornings and three in the afternoons, oh and by the way a constant supply of Jammy dodgers at all times.)

You would not be working for "The said one"

By the way was all this Showboating going on before or after The Strike?
Teachers are Cr*p in fact most "In Civil" & Public Servants are Cr*p.
This is just a measure of how Cr*p everything is.
There is nothing wrong with being a stuffed shirt and old fashioned as some Left Wing Nanny "Lefty" wrote above!
When the were whipping the cr*p out of us with sticks and canes, who was moaning for us then or fighting our corner?
Education staff making out they are a happy bunch makes me laugh, what a load of rubbish, nearly as bad as that happy lot at colchester hospital consistently reported on at one time.

Wow, just watched the video and then had a peep at the comments.
I have to say that I would be more concerned at the example being set by so called adults having a slanging match and being derogatory to one another. It all seems very petulant.

Has everyone forgotten the reason why this video has been posted? It's to celebrate our young children finishing and leaving school, no matter where the school is in the league, these kids have stuck it out and finished their education.

For some of you claiming to be amazing teachers and slamming this school and it's teachers, I'm concerned at ur inability to remain child centred and allow yourselves to be drawn into this scene.

Children are not stupid, most have been brought up by parents to have the sense not to do this themselves. Those parents moaning should have faith in their parenting skills to know their child knows this!

There is such a thing as being too risk adverse and why this country is pc gone mad. Sometimes in life you have to kick your shoes off and dance in the rain otherwise you risk experiencing very little.

So how about everyone puts their claws away and thinks for one second about the children that this video was intended for and means so much to.

If you think this is bad, I attended a respectful grammer school, high in the league tables and on completing our a levels and our final day my year hired a stripper (not for getting naked just in an outfit) to tease and jest our head of year. It was all in good fun and he took it well bless him. We are not down and outs and many have fantastic, respectful jobs and no one turned into a stripper either. It was just fun, innocent fun.

Leave the kids to enjoy this part of their youth, it goes all too quickly. As for the teachers, you engage with children better when u become human.

And as for optima, surely you should be aware of your teaching ethics and how you should not abuse your powers!? You are belittling the role of junior staff who may make teas and undervaluing them.

Shame on u all

Good grief Madam. Smile? Do you not have any idea how many years of incessant grumbling and non-stop grizzling it has taken to become a fully-fledged world class curmudgeonly Old Git?

If I were to be caught displaying so much as a momentary wince with barely a smidgen of a smirk at the edges I could lose my hard earned crown. It’s tough at the top you know!

I’d love to chat a bit longer but I can hear them coming round asking for volunteers to help with the washing up. Quick Charlie, help me put this sling back on my arm whilst I kick the keyboard under the bed.

Now all I need to do is put on really painful looking wince .

The teachers knew the risks but where they got attached to us they done a video to show how much they cared about us. Its not about what we are not allowed to do. Its about what we want others to think of us. Also the small tables u saw a teacher dancing on are put away and students only use them for exams not for lessons.

ITS NOT THE STONE AGE!
I think it's great to see these teachers letting there hair down and showing the kids the fun side of themselves what's wrong with that teachers are human after all as well! I really can't see how this video has god bad comments, my daughter is joining year 10 when they go back, she thinks it's great to see her teachers having a laugh and letting the kids see this side of them, stop moaning about it and make a video yourself! Maybe you'll have fun! It sounds like you need some!

No doubt this will spend a considerable amount of time in the news over the coming months, I've written two letters of complaint, one to Essex council and the other to the HSE. No doubt it will get investigated fully with an required action being taken. Furthermore, I urge anyone else who feels this strongly to complain it the same manner. Many posting here will be parents, please take 5 minutes and think about how you would react if one of your children were injured emulating the acts carried out by these teachers.
Is this for real???? Please tell me this is a joke! No one can be like this over a video of teachers having a bit of fun to make the students feel good and HAPPY, I'm gob smacked that someone would think like this!

BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!
Stupid name pistolpete100 .. like guns do we.??
My son is a man now.. when he was at school he was able to ride a bike and fall off it .. He played roller hockey .. he did boxing in school and like most kids who were not wrapped with cotton wool he survived with some great memories.. Suppose you want kids to be wrapped in bubble wrap and not venture out into the big wide world and keep all their frustration inside so they can grow up to be like you .. you probably sit at your computer with your PISTOL head on and shoot zombies.. Most parents are fed up with people like you who "preach but don't practice"
Have you got kids?? Most kids have more chance tripping over their shoelace..Pistolpete
100 get over yourself .. get a life..

Yeah - "get a life" . Er ...

But wait: STOP THE CHISELS! Apparently we DON'T live in the stone age and the majority of people support this exercise in lighthearted team building.

Yaaayyy!!!

Move along folks; there's nothing to see here....
